A car accident Monday night in Steuben County claimed the life of a Pennsylvania woman.
19 year old Tessa Updyke, of Kersey, Pennsylvania, was northbound on County Route 10 in Cameron around 10 o’clock when she failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway and went onto the shoulder of the road. Updyke was ejected as her car overturned several times and came to rest in a ravine. She was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger, 17 year old Creo Babcock, of Cameron, got out of the vehicle on her own and walked to a nearby home.
The cause of the accident is under investigation.
